Linear Encoders Handle Rough Apps

Built for rugged conditions, the company’s latest line of Kübler magnetic linear encoders employ A and B output voltage channels plus a periodic index with the corresponding inverted channels. Promising high accuracy results in a broad range of linear-motion applications, the T8.LI20 and T8.LI50 linear encoders are available with either a push-pull output or an RS-422 interface and provide a voltage range from 4.8 to 30 Vdc. Resolution is up to 5 μm with quadruple evaluation and repeat accuracy is ±1increment with a measuring speed up to 82 fps depending on the resolution. The RCK encoders employ non-contact technology and can survive environments with vibration levels up to 30g/10 to 2,000 Hz and shock up to 500 g/1 ms.
